You're an over 45, first time bride-to-be. You inherited a gorgeous, rare, valuable round diamond years ago which was stolen and then recovered after a grueling court battle. It's been reset into a necklace and sees the light of day for special events. You have FINALLY met the man of your dreams who wants to marry you and the only material thing you ever had your heart set on is a beautiful, grown-up, princess cut diamond ring with great color/clarity that you will wear for the rest of your life. Unfortunately, your fiance' has given you a budget that won't cover half of what your heart desires.
- Use your own diamond for the ring and have him buy a setting with a square halo and replace the necklace setting with another type of stone.
- Make sure he's completely vested in this and buy a pre-owned diamond ring (still hard to find the ring of your dreams) within the budget.
- Add to the budget without telling him.
I'm so looking forward to seeing what YOU would do!
